Was a lot of fun to watch the Walt Disney World Skyliner Gondolas go over us and try to figure out which pictures and characters were on each. They have theme pictures all around them on all sides on some of them and even throughout the window louvers. We saw all the characters including Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Groot, Star Wars, Peter Pan, Coco and a ton more. They are so colorful and cute! I was surprised by how fast they go. They really cruise along! Not open to the public yet but watching them get tested is awesome! This video is a little long, but it was a lot of fun watching them to see which characters were coming next. Enjoy!

Disney Animal Kingdom Rivers of light We Are One Debut 1st Night From Front Row Almost Center! AWESOME!!!
We got to be one of the lucky few who got to see the debut first show of Rivers of Light We Are One on Friday night from first row just about center. We did the same thing when Rivers of Light first came out and got to see the changing and improving of it as time went on which was quite amazing.
We LOVED the new show at Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom! OMG the colors, the lights, the music, the animations, the animals, the projections everywhere at once. My pictures came out awesome, but they don't do justice to the show. I had chills multiple times, cried at times with the music and just loved it. Will see it again and again and again! Below you will find a video and 3 slideshows of stills from the show as each one shows a different set of colors, perspective, lights and flavor. You cannot miss it! Video here and slideshows down the page a bit...
Note about slideshows below: I love to keep clicking the still shot button during taking my videos during these Disney projection shows! Watching the colors, patterns and pictures change is something that just thrills me. There are A LOT of pics in this slideshow. For some it will be as exciting as it is to me. For others it won't be. There are 309 stills of the show split into 3 slideshows here with all the changes. The first one has 96 pics. Second one has 138 pics and the 3rd around 74. Some are crisp and clear and some a bit blurry but the blur almost looks like art! Enjoy it however it works for you. I don't put on thumbnails with my slideshows because it just causes a really long page for people on phones so you just watch for as long as you want to. Of course, the video is also above so you can just enjoy it that way if you want. You can also always scroll through quicker than the slideshow by using the controls. You can play, stop, pause etc.

The sunset from the Magic Kingdom Ferry at Walt Disney World the other night was spectacular! This boat ride always makes me feel at peace. Even on the hardest of days with the biggest challenges, it so brings my blood pressure down and makes me feel so grateful. People love to take the monorail and so do we, but anyone who misses at least 1 ride on this, is really missing something amazing, especially at sunset.

Nothing feels more like Disney than a wonderful night cruise. We got lucky leaving Magic Kingdom to have one of the cruisers pulling into the dock. We love the ferry boat and the small boats with the blue fringe but for me, the cruisers are one of my favorites. They tie with the Sassagoula Riverboats (pontoon style boat you see at Disney Springs, Port Orleans, Saratoga Springs and Old Key West). The cruisers like the Mermaid 1 and the Bon Voyage are like a small yacht and are so smooth. You can ride in the front like we get to on this cruise. I highly recommend trying a ride on these if you get a chance. Just such a wonderful, peaceful, smooth ride. Night or day, just beautiful as well.
At the wonderful and Amazing Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom Lodge, we got to see an amazing bird that we have not seen before. At first we thought it was a person as it looked to be so tall but then we looked again and it was quite interesting to see. They call this bird the Undertaker Bird for obvious reasons. He was amazing to look at but one of the creepiest birds we have ever seen. To make it more amazing it's height can go to 152 centimeters or 59 inches tall with a wing span of 7 to 9 feet wide. That means this bird is almost as tall as I am. Wow!
It's head looked Vulture-like which was a correct assessment according to Vutomi from South Africa and from the article I looked up about this wonderful bird called a Marabou (see link below). It is actually a stork but digests things like a Vulture would. We got so many great shots and video of it from multiple angles and watched it open it's magnificent wingspan and actually try to chase other animals. One of the things we love most about Walt Disney World...you never know what you will see and what kind of adventure you are in for even if you have done things multiple times.

Great Disney adventures! We lost everything and had to start over again, but we decided to do it with magic and style here in the most magical place on earth. We were scared to death but by letting go, managed to make Pixie Dust our lives instead. You can see more about our story at the bottom of the page here...
